Rideau Centre Dining Hall
A one-of-a-kind dining experience was created for Ottawa shoppers and tourists. Situated in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the former food court in Rideau Centre was relocated from one end of the mall to another, and up one floor in the former Sears location. The urban, contemporary design is a natural fit with the incoming upscale Nordstrom department store with which it will share important vistas. The use of dark magenta as the dramatic pop of colour was a response to the fashion-centric direction of Rideau Centre's overall mall expansion and stylish new tenant mix. With its high-end finishes more reminiscent of a sophisticated restaurant or hotel lobby than a food court, and its varied seating arrangements, a new culinary experience has been achieved.
